Priyanka Chopra apologises for her participation in ‘The Activist’


Mumbai: Popular Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has also made her identity in Hollywood, issued an apology for her participation in the forthcoming series The Activist.

“I have been moved by the power of your voices over the past week. At its core, Activism is fuelled by cause and effect, and when people come together to raise their voice about something, there is always an effect. You were heard,” Priyanka Chopra said.  

“The show got it wrong, and I’m sorry that my participation in it disappointed many of you. The intention was always to bring attention to the people behind the ideas and highlight the actions and impact of the causes they support tirelessly. I’m happy to know that in this new format, their stories will be the highlight, and I’m proud to collaborate with partners who have their ear to the ground and know when it’s time to hit pause and re-evaluate,” the Desi girl said.

After the backlash, CBS announced that it is changing the format of The Activist competition series to a one-time documentary. It was originally supposed to have Priyanka Chopra, Usher and Julianne Hough judging a competitive series.
